out then. OS/2 only ran on 286 or better machines and a very limited subset
of PowerPC machines. Not all 286/386/486 machines were in the same league.
IBM's PS/2 line with MCA bus was a marvel of technology for the time and
still has a loyal following and is actively collected. Both PS/2's and OS/2
have unfortunately met their end of life.
